Add network

This option in the drop-down menu allows you to manually set up a connection to a given access point.

Normally, you would connect to a Wi-Fi network not with this menu option but by simply tapping on the name of the network you'd like to connect to from the list. This option can be useful when the Wi-Fi access point you wish to connect to does not appear on the list because it has been hidden by who-ever set up the access point (by turning off its "SSID broadcast" feature).
